Shared Resource Billing / Member Usage Tracking (Simon)

Report
Suzanne Simon
Cancer Center Administrator
James Fitzpatrick
Sr. Director of Scientific Core Facilities
Director of the Advanced Biophotonics Core
 Founded by Jonas Salk in 1970
 Designated as NCI Basic Center in 1973
■ Center includes 30 Faculty members
■ 200 Post-doctoral researchers
■ 50 Graduate research students
 Cancer Center Director: Tony Hunter, Ph.D.
 Cancer Center is distributed across Salk
■ 62% of Institute participate in Center programs
 NCI Review of Center Renewal (2008)
■ Recommendation for central database
Collect, administer and interrogate Shared Resource Use
 Provide uniform invoicing for all laboratories
 Provide ability to track CC vs non CC use

 Challenges:
■ Most CC supported cores – legacy systems
■ Need existed to create a uniform system for all cores
Collecting data
 Invoicing users
 Tracking usage

 Flexible system
■ Each core facility receives requests differently
Scheduling time on microscopes or cytometers
 Requesting different DNA / protein sample preps

■ End result: need to accommodate different data inputs
 System must interface with Banner (FIN)
 Multiple user access
■ Core Managers, CC Admin / Director, Core Director
 Reporting (CC data tables)
 Several Commercial Vendor Options
■ iLabs Solutions / CORES
■ PPMS
■ Idea Elan
 Large upfront cost plus yearly charges
 Built for larger enterprise solutions
 CHALLENGE:
■ Lack of dedicated funds to purchase system
■ No dedicated full-time administrator to manager
 Given Salk’s small size – homegrown solution
■ Flexibility to custom-design interfaces for each core
■ Salk Business Info Systems to administer databases
■ Ability to directly interface with Salk Financial system
 James Fitzpatrick (BPHO Dir / Sr. Dir CORES)
■ Worked with Suzy Simon (CC Admin)
■ Developed centralized invoicing and usage tracking
■ CRMS – Core Recharge Master System

Reports
 CRMS system functional
 Project start April 2013
 Current Status (1 year later…) :
■ 11/13 cores recharging through this system
■ Remaining two will be in production by April 2014
■ System fully functional by June 30, 2014
 Provides reporting
■ Essential for grant progress reports and renewals
■ Provides usage information to both labs and Institute
